“Untitled”, 1969


American Abstract Expressionist, studied under Robert Lehr and was best know for his figurative art. During WW2 Pace met Gertrude Stein and Pablo Picasso after being hospitalized in Paris due to war injury.[3] After completing military service, Pace went to Mexico to study art under the G.I. Bill. While at a school in San Miguel de Allende, he met artist Milton Avery who convinced him to come to New York City to continue his education, learning at the Art Students League of New York later working with artist Hans Hofmann.

Pace’s work as Abstract Expressionist during the 1950s, first displayed in New York at the Artists Gallery, was described by The New York Times as consisting of “dark, energetically worked abstractions achieved through a distinctive blend of brushwork, drawing and staining”. Though his work often appeared to have been painted very quickly, Pace was often able to make subtle corrections, saying of himself that “You might call me a fake Zen painter”.[2]Wikipedia.
